Kentucky Deer


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Just an average Kentucky buck I took yesterday with my CZ 550 FS in 9.3x62, but it's the first I was able to enjoy in the woods right after harvest with my 2 yr old Grandson. He loves his deer and enjoys touring the den and seeing the deer heads and big hog head kept there. He stood and watched as I field dressed it and his first impression as I began was "Whooooooa!!"

Here's me & my little Buddy just before we began to field dress him:

ADDED: I got the bullet back yesterday from the people I gave the deer to (landowners that allow me to hunt) and here's a couple of shots of the 285gr bullet. It expanded to just a tad over 1 full inch and was found in the offside shoulder on a quartering away shot. Gotta love those mediums!

Congratulations on the deer and the enjoyment you get from being in the woods with your grandson. I think it's really great to see people in the woods with the kids in their family. My son hunts a little bit, I've never pushed nor will I. I have a nephew who loves it who is 20 now and his younger sister ( my niece ) just turned 7 and has a huge interest in it, she and I are going to Bass Pro Shops tomorrow, her choice.

One very nice Kentucky Buck, Tnhunter. I harvested a 120 pound Doe on opening morning. Shot her with my .308 @ 150 yards but she ran an additional 25 yards before going down. Should have dropped her in her tracks since it was a Heart/Lung shot. Starting to wonder if a .308 Win. with a 150 grain factory Winchester "Power-point" is adequate for Deer size game at that distance as there wasn't much expansion on the exit hole. Had the same thing happen last year with a Buck which I also shot @150 yards. Thinking seriously about using my .270 Win. next season. Might trade my .308 A-Bolt in for a .30-06, don't know yet as the Browning is very accurate!

Hey Dave you wouldn't want to hear how far I've had them run with no heart/lungs left. Pigs, deer, you name it. 25 yards isn't bad at all.

There is nothing wrong with your .308, just enjoy it.

+1, I agree! Sometimes they just have it in them to run and I can never tell when that might be. Check out the picture of this deer's heart, split in half by a .50 cal 295gr bullet. He ran 100 yards from where he was hit!!

Tennessee M/L hunt

Most deer don't drop immediately unless hit in the nervous system, such as a spine shot. They have enough oxygenated blood in their system to carry them quite a distance in some cases. Watched a TV show last night where a mule deer was heart/lung shot and ran for approx 300 yds before dropping.

Thanks Mike. I guess it's just one of those "Deer" things that happens now & then.

We are in Southern Indiana near Louisville. My son-in-law killed a 220 lb buck Saturday. It was a job to drag it out to the truck.

Know exactly what you mean "Job to drag out" I harvested a 245 pound (field dressed) 10-point Buck, a couple years ago, that I shot in a low hollow area DEEP in my woods, a HARD up-hill pull! Had to get my Brother to help me get it to where we could get it in my Vehicle, which was a real chore for both of us.
